At the Falmouth Speech and Debate tournament on Saturday, Nov. 9, the Deering High School Debate Team competed in Public Forum and Lincoln/Douglas-Style Debate.

Seniors Glynis O’Meara and Aidan Reid; junior Aidan Blum-Levine and sophomore Linh Nguyen; and sophomores Balqies Mohamed and Emily Cheung finished first, second and third respectively.

“I’ve never seen one single school sweep three spots in an event in the six years I’ve coached this team,” said Brian Dodge, Deering math teacher and the team’s coach. “Each individual competitor/partnership is awarded points based on placement in the tournament, and all of our competitors’ scores combined to give us second place in Debate overall. They are amazing students and have worked very hard to get where they are!”
